(Thermopolis, Wyo) — Pitchengine
Wyoming's new dominate media outlet with more than 5 Million pageviews per
month, unveiled their eighth Community News Stream, Spring City
, today in Thermopolis. Named after the prominent Hot
Springs State Park there, Spring City will kick off regular content
production January 4th, 2016.
In 2015, Pitchengine launched five news streams in several Wyoming
communities including Cheyenne, Sheridan, Cody/Powell, Gillette and
Jackson. Today, Thermopolis and Hot Springs County become the eighth
location with a Pitchengine Community News Stream.
A new media outlet in a town of about 3,000 people? It's a first for
Pitchengine, but something founder and CEO, Jason Kintzler says we could
see more of.
"There's no disputing the power of this new model and we've always said
there isn't a town, city or community that can't be connected by one of
these news streams," Kintzler explained, "Spring City is the first, mostly
because of the overwhelming support from the Thermopolis stakeholders."
Kintzler spoke to a group of Chamber of Commerce members this past Fall and
it was clear that the community was eager to have their own news stream.
“I am excited to have this in our community, said Meri Ann Rush, Executive
Director of the Thermopolis-Hot Springs Chamber of Commerce.
"When I was first approached to have Jason from Pitchengine come and talk
about community news, I was interested, since I had been following County
10 and began to follow Basin Reboot," she said, "After the presentation, I
knew we needed this for Thermopolis and Hot Springs County.”
Pitchengine's COO, Fabian Lobera was a driving force behind the new venture.
"We met with a group of Thermopolis businesses and they were receptive to
something new and hungry for a better way to connect their message with
their customers," said Lobera.
"We signed up some great community supporters and thought-leaders as
Community Partners even before we typed our first news story," he said.

As with each of their news streams, Pitchengine anticipates rapid adoption
in the coming weeks.
"It will be the leading news source and connection point for Thermopolis by
the Summer," added Kintzler, "It's just the way the model works. I think
smaller communities like this one could be an interesting new part of our
